Starting a Grocery Store? (or have a big project?)

Take advantage of my 20+ years of experience as a senior leader for Whole Foods Market!

That’s me 4 people to the left of John Mackey (founder and then-CEO of Whole Foods Market).

I’ve run million-dollar (a week) stores for the company, hired thousands of employees, created complex financial documents from P&L statements, margin reports, employee scheduling, labor or profit projections, and more!

I’ve also designed store layouts, orchestrated massive store-wide resets, relocated entire stores and so much more!
Along the way, I was rewarded with numerous accolades from Whole Foods Market, ranging from:
  • Global All-Star
  • Regional All-Star 
  • Best New Store
  • Top 10 Store (numerous times)
  • Gold Pen Winner (essentially store manager of the year)

No matter what your grocery-related project is, I guarantee I can help! I offer consulting via Zoom or phone call for only $100 for 30-minutes, and I offer bulk rates for multiple sessions. Additionally, I can create any documents needed, and can also be available for in-person visits to your site.
